New law on vehicle fees benefits survivors of fallen service members



By Doug Nick / ADOT Communications

We shared the news today about a state law taking effect Jan. 1 that aims to ease the burden faced by survivors of a military member who has made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation.

The Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division will implement this law by waiving the registration fee and Vehicle License Tax for one vehicle – trailers included – for a qualified surviving spouse or dependent.

The benefit can be renewed annually and applies to survivors of those who bravely served in any branch of the U.S. military, including the National Guard, Coast Guard and Reserves.

Everyone at ADOT is proud to be a part of this effort to honor these heroes and their families.
